Hi Kriesi Team,
we have the problem, that the alt tag for our logo is missing.
We implemented the solution that is mentioned here … https://kriesi.at/support/topic/how-to-add-an-alt-tag-to-the-logo/, but
it seems not to work.
Thanks for your support!

are you using a svg graphic for your logo?
In that case the img tag is replaced by an inline svg file. The alt ( and title ) tag is not transfored to the inline svg – because this is not the way svgs are handled. Instead the most svg files do have title tag inside and f.e. a description:
<svg role="img" aria-label="[title + description]"> <title>[title]</title> <desc>[long description]</desc> ... </svg>
if you want to do it the correct way for wai-aria : just open your svg file before upload and add these two ( title is commonly present: change it to your needs ) add description of that svg file.
BUT: these attributes are not needed inside svg – see : https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/SVG/Attribute/Core

On your media library – did you insert on attachment details any title or alt attribute?November 30, 2022 at 11:54 am #1374425

Thanks for the update. I see that your logo has an alt tag now, please let us know if you should need any further help on the topic.

Hi, so yes, if you look in the code the alt tag is shown. But the screaming frog says, no alt tag. So somehow there seems to be a problem here. BR, ThiloDecember 8, 2022 at 8:16 pm #1375594
Thanks for the update. We can’t really answer for third party tests unfortunately, isn’t the content on your actual site what is important?

By the way @ThiloKiefer – this is a nice tool – to inspect a whole page – and the free-version is quite sufficient. (Screaming Frog)December 9, 2022 at 3:47 pm #1375698
This seems to be an issue with your tool, because the alt tag is showing in the source code.
Unless there is anything else we can assist with on this issue, shall we close this then?

Yesterday i had a similar message with that tool – and it was my logo image – but i used it additionally on a different place ( in my case in icon circle as center logo image) unfortunately the alt attribute from the media library is not taken over here.
or f.e.: in your footer widget – have a look if you place that image elsewhere – because that tool does not show where you placed that image – only the path of that image.December 10, 2022 at 1:58 pm #1375766
